Environmental Law and Policy at the Turn to the 21st Century

Liber amicorum for Betty Gebers

Although this book is being published a few years after the start of the new century, current environmental law in Europe has essentially been made in the last 20 years, and current environmental policy is still based on the pathways paved out in this period of time. One of the actors in this process was Betty Gebers, who was an environmental lawyer for NGOs until her premature death in September 2004. Her life achievements as well as the current state of affairs in the fields in which she was active will be examined in the following articles. The combination of retrospective and present-day analysis also forms the basis of projections as to how environmental law and policy in Europe could progress in the next decade(s) of the century.
